Our Streets crew and our Water & Sewer staff become plowmen in the winter. In the GL we allocate their time to Winter Maintenance lines as opposed to their regular department.

I’m wondering how other Towns handle plowing during the winter – do you hire on extra “seasonal” people to help plow or do you “make do” with what you have? If you hire “seasonal” employees, have you had the problem of them in turn filing for unemployment once it stops snowing? Thanks.
